Arrival Story:
We lost our beloved German Shepherd Dog, Brutus, to bloat on September 29th, 2006- which was his 10th birthday. He was also a rescue. We had such a great experience with him, we wanted to get another rescue dog. We knew we wanted a Pyr and ended up in contact with the Eastern Penn Pyr Rescue, near Allentown, Pa. They had two ready for adoption, so we took a leap of faith and drove 5 hours one way to look at them. The first one wasn't a good fit, but as soon as Bella was let out of her kennel, she came over, sat on my wife's foot and looked up at her with her big almond eyes, wanting to be petted. THEN- she walked over and stepped into the open side door of our minivan, stepped onto the rear bench seat, laid down and looked at us... "Well, I'm ready." It was truly love at first sight and she has been an absolute doll since.

We don't know her exact age, so we "Made" her birthday to be on the date we adopted her. Bella's original people gave her up when they had to move and couldn't keep her. A family then adopted her but returned her to rescue when they realized she was too much dog for them. Their loss was our gain, because Bella is the SWEETEST, most gentle dog we've ever had. Our agility has improved since we got her, because she plops down and naps wherever the mood strikes (Hallway, in front of the sofa, doorways, etc.) She is a Champion napper. We also swear she's powered by static electricity. **** All that said, and as wonderful as she is- it is important that anyone considering a Great Pyrenees research it thoroughly and be confident in their ability to handle a big, strong-willed dog. They can be a handful.

Forums Motto:
Winning hearts since 2006.

In October, my human mom and dad took me to the dog park and we came home with another dog like me. His name is Gandalf and I did NOT like sharing my attention with him at first. I'm used to it now and although he still gets on my nerves sometimes, like any little brother does, we are happy to have each other.
